Blue Ribbon Commission Update
The Blue Ribbon Commission on Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou Public Safety continues its efforts toward reaching its goal of setting safety benchmarks for the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities.

While the BRC efforts are ongoing and more work is needed before the Commission finalizes its recommendations, the panel of experts have reached consensus on some fundamental benchmarks.

The commissioners agreed that the higher priority safety issues for the public are related to methane and hydrogen sulfide, while stability issues are more long-term in nature. More specifically, the basic framework for recommendations related to issues associated with methane and hydrogen sulfide are as follows:

-In order to lift the evacuation order, gas pressure in the MRAA and overlying aquitard has to be maintained at or below hydrostatic pressure.

-Mitigation (such as barrier creation, sub-slab depressurization, ventilation) at each dwelling that is slab-on-grade or has enclosed…

NOAA: 2013 Dead-zone in Gulf of Mexico to be among largest ever recorded

Great Lakes pesticides comeing down the Miss. River after killing off Lake Erie….

The Extinction Protocol

June 20, 2013GULF OF MEXICOScientists are expecting a very large “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico and a smaller than average hypoxic level in the Chesapeake Bay this year, based on several NOAA-supported forecast models. NOAA-supported modelers at the University of Michigan, Louisiana State University, and the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium are forecasting that this year’s Gulf of Mexico hypoxic “dead” zone will be between 7,286 and 8,561 square miles, which could place it among the ten largest recorded. That would range from an area the size of Connecticut, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia combined on the low end to the New Jersey on the upper end. The high estimate would exceed the largest ever reported, 8,481 square miles in 2002. Hypoxic (very low oxygen) and anoxic (no oxygen) zones are caused by excessive nutrient pollution, often from human activities such as agriculture…

Gulf Restoration Network –  Landmark Agreement to Protect Gulf of Mexico Whales, Dolphins from Industry’s High-Intensity Airgun Surveys
Environmental Coalition Reaches Legal Settlement with Feds and Oil and Gas Industry

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 21, 2013) – Yesterday a coalition of conservation groups (the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Gulf Restoration Network, the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Sierra Club) announced a major settlement agreement with the Department of the Interior and oil and gas industry representatives, to protect whales and dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico from high-intensity airgun surveys. The settlement requires new safeguards, including putting biologically important areas off-limits, expanding protections to additional at-risk species, and requiring the use of listening detection devices to better ensure surveys do not injure endangered sperm whales. The agreement was filed in the case of NRDC v. Jewell, in U.S. District Court…

LA17 showed it too, and that is near Hwy 70.

We have this from K.S. who lives there –

“That radical shake at midnight on the 27th, I hit the sack @ 11:50 that night. Right at midnight, I felt my camper “bounce”. No traffic passing. I actually got up & listened. Then I opened the door, looked out, & listened until a pickup passed. Then I locked up & crashed out. I’m in Pierre Part almost to Duffy’s Place, roughly 10 miles west of our place down La 70. I felt that surface bounce here. FYI.”

LATER – the helicorders may show this geo-phone hole work they are doing as reported on p.4 of the weekly SONRIS report.   heli_button

Home Buy-Out Deadline Extended

The Advocate –  Deadline for sinkhole buyout talks extended to July 31

BAYOU CORNE — Nearly half of the eligible residents and families in an evacuation area affected by a sinkhole induced by a Texas Brine Co. salt dome failure last summer have agreed to company buyout offers, while the rest have more than a month to complete negotiations.

Texas Brine faced a 5:30 p.m. court-imposed deadline Monday to reach out-of-court settlements with residents who had not filed suit against the company, but U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey extended that deadline on Tuesday until July 31, Texas Brine spokesman Sonny Cranch said. . .  .
